I am always looking for a good mayonnaise or mustard-based spread to put on a chicken sandwich, or any sandwich made with cold cuts, but never seem to find one outside of restaurants. For example, there is a restaurant called TJ's Trattoria outside of Pennington, NJ that puts a tarragon mayonnaise on their chicken sandwich that is amazing. I dunk my fries in it!! They told me how to make it, but I never seem to get it right. I reduce some tarragon in white wine and mix it in some mayo. Sounds easy, but I know I am doing something wrong. It's not bad, but not the same. Wild Wing Cafe puts a very good "secret sauce" on their chicken sandwich as well and it's very good.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had some cool recipes for sauces to spread on sandwiches.

I love to get a tub of whipped cream cheese & mix in a jar of basil pesto. You could mix mayo & pesto but the cream cheese tastes SO good.

Here are several options. Each are for 1 cup mayonnaise:

Add 4 crushed carglic cloves & 1/2 tsp kosher salt.

Add 2 crused garlic cloves & 2 TBL minced red & green bell pepper.

add 1/2 to 1 cup finely chopped fresh herbs (basil is good as is fresh tarragon, but use a bit less than 1/2 cup)

Add 12 drained & minced oil-pack sun-dried tomatoes.

Add 2 tsp grated lemon zest & 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice.

Add 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, 1/4 cup minced green onions, 2 TBL chopped capers & 1 tsp hot sauce. (This is really good on chicken sandwiches.)

Add 1/2 cup chopped roasted red pepper.

Also you can just mix in some Durkee's Sandwich Spread with they mayo to make a really good chicken sandwich.

Here is my "put it on everything" sauce, good on burgers, hot dogs and just about any kind of sandwich.
One tablespoon of ketchup,
Half a tablespoon of brown mustard,
One teaspoon of horseradish sauce,
Half a teaspoon of Tapatio hot sauce,
One quarter teaspoon of balsamic vinegar,
A few drops of liquid smoke,
A pinch of red pepper flakes,
A pinch of ground black peppercorn,
A pinch of garlic powder,
A few drops of honey,
Mix very well.

Double, triple or quadruple the recipe as needed. Everyone seems to love this.
